It doesn't have to take days, weeks and months to work up a crochet afghan! You can make this Lazy Girl Crochet Blanket in 5 and a half hours because it's worked with 2 strands. This crochet pattern from Lion Brand Yarn is cozy and incredibly fast to make. If you need a last minute gift for someone or for an occasion, this is definitely a go-to idea. We adore the super bulky and self-striping yarn that is used in this afghan because it gives it a very interesting texture.

How to Crochet this Afghan:

2. Before beginning, wind just one of the skeins into 2 balls so that you have an even number of strands.

4. An edging is worked along the long side edges of the finished piece.

A video would be great here. Someone put a link to a V stitch which doesn't work on my PC I am really interested in making this and it look easy, which I need after work.

Hi Lauriestvenson! I am not sure if you saw this, but we have a video on how to make the V stitch on AllFreeCrochet: https://www.allfreecrochet.com/Crochet-Videos/How-to-Crochet-the-V-Stitch-Craft-Video I hope this helps! Megan, AFC Editor

This afghan is for me! It seems from reading the ever so simple pattern that the afghan would be easy to crochet. Love the soft color. I like to find simple afghan patterns like this one that would be great to complete while TV watching. Great last minute gift idea as the afghan could be completed in one evening.

This pattern certainly will work up quickly since you hold two bulky yarns together at the same time and use a Q hook. But Im a little confused by the Materials list. It states that it requires seven balls of yarn. However, the notes say to wind one skein into two balls. What happened to the other balls? Do you just use the yarn straight from the remaining skeins?

I am currently making a baby blanket with soft, bulky yarn. My friend felt it and instantly requested a blanket of his own. His blanket will have to be much larger than a baby blanket! This may be a good pattern to follow for his blanket.

This blanket is so simple to make, it works up so quickly because of the large hook size and the thickness of the yarn is so plush and soft. This is the perfect blanket for this cold winter weather!

How important is it to "wind just one of the skeins into 2 balls so that you have an even number of strands" instead of just pulling from two balls? I am using the yarn recommended. Will it affect the shading?

I love this design... I want to do it but I dont understand the instructions. (

rencholshikata 002 9034 watch this video (short, about 1 minute) to see how to do V stitch

sorry..........it would help if I included the link.............. https//www.youtube.com/watch?v= == nQNQ9IunaYc

Thanks for that direct link, Janie, I think that will really help those of us who haven't done the v stitch before. Makes it easier for me when I have something to watch like a video, can't always just follow the pattern. Have you made this blanket before? Any tips or tricks for newbies?

i know what you mean we need a video
